Yes it was an old baseball stadium. Built in 1929, I attended many a minor league game there growing up. Babe Ruth played there once, in an exhibition game. That the Dead would play that place, then two days later on the holiday appear in an NFL football stadium is, well, very Dead.

The stadium has been gone for some time now. Last time I was there the site was a large grassy field. It was disappointing to me that they did not preserve and commemorate the location of home plate through the demolition and remodel process.
